Clash of the Titans....in 3D!

01.21.2010

Was AVATAR not enough 3D Sam Worthington for you? Good news then. Warner Bros. is testing out scenes from CLASH OF THE TITANS in 3D to decide whether they want to convert the entire movie to the extra-dimensional format for its March 26. The studio has a deadline of the end of next week to make their decision to convert to 3D and still make the current release date.

UPDATE - Box Office Magazine spoke with director Louis Leterrier on CLASH in 3D and this is what he had to say. "Everything is going to come right at your face...You'll be going through the tentacles of the Kraken, following the Pegasus for three seconds and then the claw of a scorpion is going to snap right at you—jump right out." Leterrier also add something I hadn't thought of - whether converting to 3D presents a ratings challenge. When discussing whether Warner Bros. will decide to it he mentions, "It's also a rating issue because now it gets really scary." In the end though he says he "think(s) it's going to work" and that we'll know for sure on February 3.

A number of upcoming films have considered converting to 3D (IRON MAN 2 among them) but most have decided to pass on the idea. But CLASH could be the first in the post-AVATAR environment where extra money brought in from 3D screenings has given the film a significant financial boost.

A significant issue may be that March already has two significant 3D releases in ALICE IN WONDERLAND and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON (which opens the same day as COTT) and 3D screens might be at a premium. A Warner Bros source told The Hollywood Reporter they saw this as "no problem" but that might be wishful thinking.

Are you interested in seeing CLASH OF THE TITANS in 3D? Do you wish studios would convert more 2D films to 3D?

Extra Tidbit: Geez pretty soon our website will be in 3D. Or at the very least our tweets...

If it wasn't meant to be 3D from the beginning, it will look like shit.

No

converting a 2D movie into 3D will look like crap. I've seen enough of those to know better.

No thanks. Avatar did it right but we don't need 3D in every movie.

The Medusa scene and the Kraken might be pretty sweet in 3D -- but I think that moving a 2D into a 3D film isn't really a selling point for those that weren't interested in the first place...

Meh...

I don't think it adds anything to the film or experience. Sounds like it would be more of a novelty and that, to me, is not a good reason to make a movie 3D.

2D Version

I'd see it in 2D at the theater. The trailer I saw left me less than impressed. I liked the original alot and hope this one is good.

Convert from 2D

3D really only works when it is shot in 3D using 3D cameras. Converting 2D into 3D doesn't have the same effect. If studios keep just convert 2D movies to 3D they may inadvertently kill 3D.

"Everything is going to come right at your face." This is the kind of BAD use of 3D.

Enough hating on 3-D!

3-D can't do anything but ADD to the movie experience. It's clearly not a gimmick anymore (Those that have seen Avatar know this.) You 3-D haters sound like 70 year old techno-phobes, afraid of anything new and fandangled.

Nope. No thank you. 3D is not anything I am interested in. Won't pay extra money for it. I'm done.

Splendid. IF any movies should ever be converted to 3D, it should be epic tales. I'm already burning with desire to see this movie, and will gladly shell out an extra 10 bucks to see it in ball-tripping fashion.

2 Much 3D

Remember back when Hollywood went crazy with natural disaster movies. Well 3D is all the craze right now. But I don't see it being anything more than a passing fad. I feel sorry for parents who have to pay all that money to take their kids to see these movies. I mean, movies are expensive enough as it is. I think the 3D craze will pass, and Hollywood will move on to the next big thing. Maybe smell-o-vision. Fair warning people, I wouldn't buy a 3D television if I were you.

i dont mind a 3D presentation, but also have a standard 2D available as well. maybe i dont want to pay a premium for certain movies.

Meh

The problem is that a movie like Avatar comes out in 3D and EVERYONE goes to see it (sometimes 3 and 4+ times) and studios think, "Wow, people loooove 3D. Let's make ALL of our movies in 3D now!" I think I've seen enough 3D movies but as long as people keep going back for more, we're gonna keep getting them.

Could be better, maybe not..

I hope studios make their 3D decisions based on whether or not the moviegoers' experience improves because of it, and not just cuz Avatar made a ton of money..

i´m all for 3D movies, but in a small amount, i mean, they´re special and great by themselves because they´re unique, but as soon as everyone starts making 3D movies, it won´t be so unique and different anymore.

imagine if everyone did 3D movies before avatar got out, i bet you guys doughnuts to dollars that avatar wouldn´t be the hit it´s being right now ;)

so, no more 3D please :S

Release Date Changed

The date for this 3-D release of TITANS has been moved to 4/2 per Warner Brothers. It will end up a better 3-D grosser than "Train Your Dragon".

Leave it the way it is. But it doesn't matter what anyone on this site thinks since all the studios care about is dollar signs. It sounds like they've already made up their minds...3D Kraken he we come.
